Weather Report - New England

She is here then gone only to return worse, like waves – the nor-easter
Then sometimes will become so hot that it will burn our exposed skin
Cold, so much so, our fingers get bitten by the freeze - frost bite
(no Robert Frost did not bite) but Jack frost?
She is loose from asylum a true bi-polar, she and her mood swings

Can’t make up her mind, she’s a neurotic alcoholic
I want to smack her with a red clay brick up the head-side
She sends everyone to die a Sahara dried out death
Next she gives us the white Antarctica (with no power)
Then everything between her extremes - an extremist!

Out of nowhere like a jet turbine’s exhaust at a huge cost
Comes the foulest of wastewater pushed back through drains
You drown all things wonderful - you killer thriller!
From the west to east you love to bring yourself
To New England and from south to north and from wherever
Living here means we need to be the toughest - real sports
To put up with your damn changes mother of all fuckers
Because to wreck our lives over and over is your damned nature
(you also make pretty flowers and other nice stuff)
You are one
Screwed up
Bitchy thing!
Love you…

Now that I have it I can expand on it rather than strap myself in.

Has a great rhythm in the stanzas…. I’m curious about the mention of urine?

I really don't like it and will fix it.
I was thinking sewers backing up during floods.
Thanks,
